A British family is given the chance to experience the reality of living in New Zealand before deciding whether to make the move for good.

For Simon Guile, working as a pub landlord meant spending too much time away from his family. Desperate to find a more balanced life, he hoped a move to New Zealand would hold the answer. But, with the rest of the family less certain, he faced an uphill task in convincing them. Two years on from their visit, find out where the Guiles are now.
